Trailer: Sara Giraudeau and Benjamin Lavherne, ready for a troubled market in "The Sixth Child"


Carried by a quartet of brilliant actors, a first film which stages two couples who are completely opposed, whom an irrepressible desire for a child leads to a disturbing agreement.

It's the story of two couples that everything opposes.

Franck, a scrap dealer (Damien Bonnard) and his wife Meriem (Judith Chemla), sedentary gypsies, live in a caravan with their five children.

Julien (Benjamin Lavernhe, from the Comédie-Française), a lawyer from uptown, is married to Anna, also a lawyer.

Two characters with a bourgeois-bohemian tendency, who fail to become parents.

Implicated in a concealment case, Franck is defended by Julien.

While they are expecting a sixth child, Franck and Meriem, cornered, give up keeping him.

The father then offers his lawyer an illicit deal: entrust him with his unborn baby, for a fee.

Adapted from

Alain Jaspard 's novel

Crying Rivers

, The Sixth Child

is the first film by Léopold Legrand, a director barely thirty years old whose story resonates in part with his, being himself adopted.

He signs an intimate drama, written without pathos, which refuses any moral judgment but explores with finesse a wide range of feelings.

And manages to generate empathy for these desperate characters whose irrepressible desire leads to bewilderment.
